After Randy Moss debacle, Tinucci’s restaurant gets more praise, this time from Mark Dayton

Tinucci’s Deli in Woodbury and Newport continues to garner good publicity after the Randy Moss debacle, with a boost from likely Gov.-elect Mark Dayton, who has this post on his Facebook page:

Mark Dayton: Tinucci’s has EXCELLENT food and GREAT people! They catered a couple of our campaign’s events and were terrific. (Full disclosure: Third generation family member, Katie Tinucci, was my outstanding Deputy Campaign Manager.)

Tinucci’s had catered the locker room lunch for the Vikings on Oct. 29, and Moss apparently didn’t like the spread and screamed at restaurant owner Gus Tinucci that the food wasn’t fit for his dog. When the outburst hit the media, it became another reason for fans to call for Moss’s departure, which happened soon afterward.

Since then, the restaurant has played up the Moss incident and been busier than ever.

When (if?) there’s a Dayton inauguration, who will cater?
